ELLE Decoration (UK) - - Elle Decoration Promotion -

Wood pan­els can trans­form bare walls. First, seek out a spe­cial­ist com­pany that can ad­vise on in­stal­la­tion – head to Rat­ed­peo­ple.com for ex­perts in your area. If the walls in your home are un­even, you need to cre­ate a smooth sur­face that you can at­tach pan­elling to. This can be done by fix­ing lengths of wood ( bat­tens) to the wall, onto which you place MDF or plas­ter­board. The English Pan­elling Com­pany (theenglish­pan­elling­com­pany.co.uk) sells a wide se­lec­tion of pan­elling styles. How­ever, if you are look­ing for an easy, af­ford­able al­ter­na­tive, con­sider us­ing wall­pa­per with a pan­elled de­sign – Mine­heart (mine­heart.com) and Gra­ham and Brown ( gra­ham­brown.com) both have stylish trompe-l’oeil op­tions avail­able.
